That crappy looking soccermobile is a Cadillac?

My sister's (RIP) house is just down the road from there. Something there looked familiar.

Video editing is a lost concept on 99% of people.  Clip should have been 30 seconds long, total.

A Florida man in a Cadillac XTS reversed out of a bank parking lot, onto a main road and ultimately onto the roofs of a VW Jetta and Dodge Journey.

Thankfully no vehicles of value were destroyed in this incident.

On my phone, with no q to say that the Cadillac was going to cross the road, I didn't even notice it. I thought the camera was from the car that crashed, so probably skipped over it looking for the good part. And then when I did watch that I had to squint to notice.

Little bit of editing, one of those things were they slow it down for second and point to the car, those things are helpful.

On the flip side, you get what you pay for.

Hay leave the poor Cadillacs out of this. They didn't harm no one.

I'm guessing an old person who would swear they were pressing the brake while the car kept going faster as they actually were hitting the accelerator. A friend's grandfather was killed when an old man hit the accelerator instead of the brakes and drove through a Pizza Hut. Not surprisingly, most of the people affected by Toyota "uncontrolled accelerators" like 10 years ago were on average older than the average drivers of those cars.

Up until the driver backed over the two cars, I was going to award them a 9.5 for style (and not wrecking up to that point). However, if they had been driving a Marauder, this wouldn't have been an issue:

They are just trying to avoid a possible DUI. It's the florida way.

Couldn't see the video due to all the blocks and filters I have, but I'll add that my wife is an insurance claims trainer and gets to see some pretty crazy videos of accidents and such. She showed me one the other day where the video is from a surveillance camera at a gas station.
On the road on the far side of the station a semi truck makes a fast left turn into a parking lot crushing the corner of a Cadillac that was waiting to turn out of the parking lot. After this, the Cadillac tears off at full throttle through traffic, across the street and makes a left into the gas station narrowly missing several cars and people in the lot and parked at the pumps and winds up hitting an island at full speed and flipping onto its roof. The video cuts off as the station attendant and others start running to the car.

So yeah, Cadillac drivers be crazy.

We Ate the Necco Wafers: The new Cadillac


Fun Fact:  Sitting in that car at any age turns womens' hair blue, and mens' pants suddenly have a waistband just below the nipples.

Also, the left turn signal is permanently wired to be on while the ignition is active.

I don't get the hate for the new Caddys.  XTS looks nice.

Although I prefer the looks of the ATS (the smaller sibling to the XTS).

Anybody else notice that the video taker crossed lanes while making their left turn.  They went from inner most left turn lane and completed their turn in the right lane.  I hate idiots like this.

The underrated part is the SUV that narrowly avoids getting hit at about 0:15. The vehicle stops and idles in that spot for nearly 20 seconds and you can just picture the conversation that's going on inside. "The HELL was that?!" "Farkin' Florida, man!"
